Bachelor Party in Vegas - Restaurant, Pool, & Activity Recommendations

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm having my bachelor party in Vegas in a few weeks.

Still need to finalize details.

Group of ~6-8 guys, ~30 yrs old

What are the best fun/casual (Fri night) and nice (Sat night) restaurants, w/o blowing up everyone's wallet.

What's are good pool scenes? Have been to Marquee Day Club, which is about the right speed, but would be willing to take it down a notch on clubyness possibly.

What is a good random activity? Looking for one non-gambling non-pool thing. Shooting doesn't seem that fun.

Anyone done dune buggies or go-carts or anything like that?

I can't imagine regretting the dune buggies - it's on my list if I ever go to Vegas. Oh, and shooting is fun.

Yeah I'm leaning toward dune buggies, can't think of anything else, which is weird because you'd think vegas would have a lot of wild, niche-y things.

I like shooting, but don't see it as much of a party activity, and some of the guys in my group don't have gun skills. And one of them is an army ranger and he'd probably get carried away.

Only other thing I've seen that interests me is driving exotic cars, but that is too pricey to expect from my crew.

For Saturday night you probably can't go wrong with Sage. It's certainly not my favorite restaurant in Vegas by any means, but I think it will fit your needs pretty perfectly and everyone can find several things on that menu that will appeal to them. And if any of your friends are the type to feel like they are stiffed if they don't get Cheesecake Factory portions at a restaurant they'll be pretty satisfied with Sage. If you're wanting something a little nicer but a little more expensive than Sage, Picasso at Bellagio is the best value fine dining in Las Vegas. Just don't make the mistake of returning because it will be exactly the same.

As for casual/fun for Friday night...Idk, maybe Holstein's (burger place) at the Cosmopolitan. Really good milkshakes made with spirits (campfire smores or drunken monkey ftw). I don't really go to Vegas for casual dining, we usually just do breakfast and dinner.

If you're awake you should definitely go to Bouchon for brunch. On Saturday and Sunday they do the best chicken and waffles I've ever had. The beignets (with jam, **** the nutella) are excellent as well.

And fwiw, Piob, Mrs. Piob, Mrs. h_s, and I had a good time one afternoon drinking wine and eating charcuterie at Carnevino which is either at the Venetian or Palazzo.

I second the Bouchon reco. I took my family there and had an GREAT meal that didn't bust anyone's wallet.

I'd avoid the Tao and Wet Republic pool parties. Crowded, LOUD, douchey crowd with tiny/dirty pools. My buddy is having a bachelor party in early September and I think we're going to do one of the slightly lesser known pool parties and "ball out" with a Cabana.

Why not do a day of golf? Though depending on the time of year it can be BRUTALLY hot and the courses are big $$$$, not to mention a problem if not all your friends golf...

There's also exotic car driving at Red Rock. It's expensive but the reviews are almost to a 100% brimming with raves.

Second HS on a long lunch at Carnevino that is casual yet good and won't kill the wallet. A place we enjoyed was La Cave at the Wynn which has a nice wine list and some good nosh (buffalo carpaccio ftw). Also second Bouchon's for brunch. Would reco for a well priced dinner with two stars (think it's two stars?) and a great wine list.

If you don't mind dropping some $$ caviar and Champs or vodka at the Petrossian ftw.

Thanks for the recommendations. Sage & Picasso look good, but are prob a bit on the pricey side for some of my buds. Same situation for Red Rock.

Bouchon sounds interesting though, depends on wake time, but possible. More likely to be roudy though, it's a bachelor party after all, so we're not gonna be in wine & cheese mode.

Golf - no time for that, just a weekend trip. And 1/2 the group is pretty serious into gambling.

Odds are it will be pool Saturday, and there's time for something quick Sunday, but it may just be craps.

I figure all the pools are gonna have the frat factor, no way to avoid it.
